Connect your domain to Google GSuite

Verification of domain ownership

GSuite needs to verify if you are the domain owner. There are a few ways doing that:

  • TXT record
  • CNAME record
  • MX record
  • Meta Tag (has to be configured on your website, not in DNS)

We recommend to use the MX record, then you only need to configure one type of records on your domain.

You will be asked which option you choose at the beginning of adding your domain to GSuite in the admin panel. After that the admin panel will tell you the record you have to enter.

If you rather choose to use TXT or CNAME record, please have a look in the respective sections of our FAQ:
